I’ve really been enjoying the Fallen Empire series which feels more fantasy than fantasy romance. The world has the magic and creatures, swords and crossbows, cruel beatings and tortures, horses, the old kingdoms, and of course, the greedy rulers.   The story is an friends to enemies to lovers story.  It is connected to the previous […]

I was curious to learn about this debut novel in The Unorthodox Chronicles series from Jim Butcher’s son, James.  I found it a worthwhile read, although like any new world I had to assimilate the parameters. I was initially uncertain who the main character would be, but it is clear in the blurb. Grimsby is […]

I enjoyed this sort of retelling of the story of Baba Yaga.  The Witch and the Tsar has the Russian mythology feel like books by Naomi Novik (Spinning Silver), and Katherine Arden (The Winternight Trilogy) and oddly, some of the folklore is even in the Robin LeFever’s Fair Assassins series.  Of course, this book has […]

Final Heir by Faith Hunter @HunterFaith ‏ @AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub @LetsTalkLTP #GIVEAWAY

Now we come to the final book in the Jane Yellowrock series.  The style of Final Heir felt very different to me. As usual, the point of view is Jane’s with her thoughts and where she is and what she sees.  Because she is now often in a more political role, directing things, and being […]

If you have enjoyed Jack Campbell’s other series, Lost Fleet and Beyond the Frontier, and Lost Stars,  Genesis Fleet series, you will love this too.  I started reading Jack Campbell in 2015 when I was sent an ARC of one of the Leviathon, which was the final book in the Beyond the Frontier series.   Of […]
